Tip #1 - Eat 5 to 6 mini meals per day
Mini meals are a recommended
way to eat when trying to lose weight. You are not depriving yourself
to the point that you're hungry, and you eat throughout the day
without feeling bogged down or tired. Mini meals also help to
speed up your body's metabolism (which is the rate at which your
body burns calories). By eating smaller meals throughout the day,
your body knows that it is constantly going to be nourished and
therefore burns calories instead of storing most of them.
Tip #2 - Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water per day
Water makes up
half our adult body weight and provides a medium for all of the body's
fluids which are vital for breathing, digestion and metabolism. The
only thing more important than water for our body is the consumption of
air. Water balances the acids in the body and carries nutrients into
all the body's cells and is essential for removing waste from cells.
When you don't drink enough water, problems such as dehydration, sore
muscles, joints and digestive inefficiency can occur. It doesn't matter
whether you are dieting or not, you should drink at least eight 8 ounce
glasses of water per day.
If you do these things along with exercising you can stop worrying
about your weight!
